TKA Students Show Their Gratitude To Healthcare Workers

Students Marlo Lacy, Luke Ramos and CJ Ruiz with staff at WRMC.

On behalf of the eighth-grade class at the King’s Academy, student council members CJ Ruiz, Luke Ramos and Marlo Lacy recently delivered 50 Olive Garden meals to the frontline healthcare workers at Wellington Regional Medical Center. The idea began as student council members were discussing how heartbreaking the COVID-19 pandemic is and how brave the frontline healthcare workers are for directly combating the virus. Their discussion quickly turned into a plan that included a “thank you” banner and meal delivery during a shift change at the hospital. “We wanted to give back,” Ruiz said. “It is the very least we could do for those who put their lives on the line every day to help make our community safer.”
